GK
Touratech makes one that replaces the speaker with a female line out connector. Just found it a few days ago.

ok - I read a few of the 1500 posts about GPS... and narrowed it down to Garmin 2720 or the 60cx

Which one would you buy for dual sport use? (DR or KTM mounted - occasional creek crossing etc)

Thanks a bunch!

I think I know the answer...but I should refrain...too many of us answer what we "think", instead of what we "know".

But I will and wait for an answer...

What's the difference between a "track" and a "route"?

Question

Quick question-the motorcycle mount for my Zumo 550 has a mini USB socket. I can't find anything in the owner's manual. What's it used for?

It's used to charge the unit when off the bike, and to transfer data and map updates from Mapsource to the Zumo. You should have got a USB cable with your Zumo as well.

I'm asking about the USB socket in the motorcycle mount, not the unit itself.

It's used for the GXM-30 XM receiver or FM traffic receiver. I have a GXM-30 connected to my that gives me tunes, traffic and a crude weather.com style weather capability.

It's on page 54 of your owners guide!

Thanks again! This Zumo thing is way more technical than my Nuvi. Now I'm trying to figure out how to download routes...

Topo Maps or City Navigator NT 2009?

Okay, I'm a new GPS user, so I'm trying to learn here. I recently picked up a Garmin GPSMap 60cx for use when dual sport riding. I have the basemap software that came with the unit, as well as Topo USA 2008 and City Navigator North America 2009. Which mapset is best for use on the GPS for creating custom routes? I plan on riding the Michigan MCCCT this spring, have some of the routes downloaded, but I'm not sure which mapset I am suppose to be using for off-road trails. Thanks.
